Living in leggings and workout clothes like I do? Check out what it was like for me to get a Fabletics VIP membership!
I’m sure you’ve all seen the ads all over social media for Fabletics. Every time I go on social media I see a celebrity or the average person promoting their love for Kate Hudson’s athletic brand. All the advertising of cute leggings and sportswear, plus 50% your first order when you become a Fabletics VIP member, finally got me to cave and try it for myself!
Fabletics claims to “…create clothing that inspires you to stay active, whether that means competing in an iron(wo)man competition, sweating in the studio, or chasing after your kids. Our on-trend designs are high in quality at prices you’ll feel good about. This is where the inspiration starts. Beyond the clothing, we foster a community of people who embrace our mantra – “Live Your Passion” – every day.” Their goal is to provide stylish and high quality gear at an accessible price point.
Becoming a Fabletics VIP Member…
Signing up is super easy! You simply go to https://www.fabletics.com/get-started and take their short lifestyle quiz. The quiz is about how and wear I like to work out and my style and size preferences. Once you sign up to be a member you get various perks. From personalized picks based on your style preferences, up to 50% off all the time, early access to new launches, cash rewards, free gear, and more. The only stipulations are that you must shop or skip by the 5th of each month. If you don’t you will be charged $49.95. However, the $49.95 is added to your account as a credit for shopping and you can cancel any time.
My First Order…
After I signed up, I began shopping for my first discounted order as a VIP member! I ordered 2 pairs of leggings, a cropped tank, and a cropped sweatshirt. I got 2 leggings for $24 and 50% off all the other items in my order. This gave me a total savings of $160, which is nearly 68% savings on my total!
Here are the items I ordered:
My Honest Review…
One of the items that has been on my wardrobe essential list is a cropped sweatshirt. Unfortunately, I haven’t found any affordable options until now! The Eco-Conscious Crop Terry Pullover in black is by far my favorite purchase of this order. The material is incredibly soft, is comfortable and stretchy, and the fit is flattering. I have been looking for this type of sweatshirt forever and am so happy I purchased it! The retail price is $79.95 and VIP price is $69.95. I also received 50% off the VIP price so it was really affordable, feels high quality, and soft fabric. I love it so much that I actually ordered a similar one in grey!
Features advertised include: made with recycled materials, relaxed fit.
The second top I ordered was the Gia Cropped Seamless Tank in white. I absolutely love the material of this top! It’s incredibly soft, lightweight, and comfortable. This makes it perfect for working out, especially in this summer heat. I feel that the cut of the top hits at the right length and the cut of the arms is flattering for my shoulders. Regularly priced at $39.95, $29.95 for VIP, and 50% off of VIP because of my promo made it a great deal!
Features advertised include: all-way stretch, , breathable, moisture-wicking.
As part of the promo I received when signing up as a first-time VIP member, I was eligible for 2 leggings for $24! This deal is what really sold me on trying out VIP membership. $12 each for leggings is a really good deal. Especially if they are as high quality as the brand claims.
The first pair of leggings I chose were the Trinity High-Waisted Utility Legging in safari green. I decided to choose this pair because I absolutely LOVE leggings with pockets and this pair has multiple! There is a mesh pocket on the right that fits my phone, a zipper pocket on the left, and a zippered back waistband pocket that can fit small items. I am very happy with the soft, thick, flexible fabric and the quality of the stitching. The fit is a bit tight, but true to size overall. Also, it’s a flattering, sculpting cut that passed the squat test. All in all, the one negative I have would be that the ankle zippers were a bit uncomfortable to leave zipped. After a while they pressed into my skin.
They are regularly $89.95 retail price, $69.95 VIP price, and only $12 for my first time member deal. I would definitely recommend these leggings for the quality and price!
Features advertised include: external pocket, all-way stretch, chafe-resistant, moisture-wicking, zip pockets.
Lastly, the second pair of leggings I chose was the Anywhere High-Waisted Moto 7/8 in Aegean. I love the color of this pair and the detail of the various fabric patches. There is a double pocket on each side that fits my phone and other small items. Also, the fabric is very soft and high quality feeling! The fit is similar to the other pair of leggings, a bit tight but overall true to size. The range of motion and breath-ability of the fabric are as advertised and pass the squat test! At $94.95 retail price, $64.95 VIP price, and only $12 with my first time VIP member deal it was a steal for these leggings!
Features advertised include: External pocket, all-way stretch, breathable, chafe-resistant, moisture-wicking.
Overall, I was pleasantly surprised by my experience of becoming a Fabletics VIP Member. Signing up is easy, the shopping part is always fun, and I loved the quality and style of all the items I ordered! The only cons I have are the leggings I ordered ran just a tad tight (they may stretch to fit better as I wear them more) and the shipping time seemed long. Fabletics informed me that their shipping time may be delayed due to Covid and the various delays associated with that. So I’m hoping the wait to receive future orders gets better.
I absolutely recommend becoming a Fabletics VIP member! The cost savings is definitely worth it for the quality and style. I was worried about feeling locked in to spending money, but it isn’t as bad as I expected! You don’t have to spend anything as long as you go to your profile and skip by the 5th of every month. Worried you’ll forget to skip a month? Fabletics sends you a reminder to skip and if you’re still concerned, set up an event on your phone calendar to remind you to skip at the beginning of each month like I have!
